  1. Love it. My teacher will have a heart attack if I tell him there's a book out there about Abraham Lincoln who is Vampire Hunter! :)

  2. I am reading Soulless right now and cannot wait to read Changeless.

  3. That first graphic is creepy...but sort of creepy-awesome at the same time. I HEART the Parasol Protectorate series. What awesomeness - and I haven't even read the second one yet!

  4. Now why do they have to take a perfectly good genre and throw vampires in it?

    I've been wanting to check out Carriger's work for a while.
